Reviews from other users

John is a wonderful host. We stayed in his lovely Fitzroy apartment in February. John's home is very well furnished and extremely comfortable and tram links into the city centre - CBD - are very easy.

John went well above and beyond what one would expect of a host. He picked us up at the airport, drove us around Melbourne to orient us to his beautiful city and provide an excellent breakfast.

We were delighted to meet John and look forward to seeing him again.
